September 2019 Hot Flashes

September Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

You’ll begin seeing a beautiful shade of teal this month from businesses to individuals who are supporting National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. This cancer has affected many people, from the brave women who have had it, to their families. Take some time this month to access your health in light of ovarian cancer and know the symptoms so you are educated.

One in 75 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and it is estimated that 14,240 women will die this year alone. It is essential to survival that this cancer is detected early, but not all women know the signs as well as they do breast cancer signs and symptoms. In the case of ovarian cancer, the persistence of these symptoms is key.

The symptoms can mean a lot of different things so work with your doctor to figure out what the cause is before worrying.
